Case Logic KSW 336 Wallet - Has its issues but it has still been a fairly good product for me.
Jul 11, 2011
DVD's and CD's can take up a lot of space on your shelves, and can have you buying or building more shelves as your collection begins to grow. Since I'm more of a collector and it's rare that I would sell my old movies and cd's, I need a CD/DVD wallet. I've been using these cases by Case Logic since 1999 and they have been doing a great job helping me keep track of my DVD/CD's, as well as keeping scratches to a minimum.
In regards to regular movies and horror; I normally throw away the original cases. Therefore, this case is quite valuable to me. The case is said to hold 336 disk. The case comes with many pages that holds four disk, front and back. The pages hold up to 320 disk total, but there's a packet located in the sleeve at the very beginning of the book that holds the last 16, which is suppose to house your favorites and make them easily accessible.
Removing the disk are very easy; the plastic cases on the pages have a wedge in the middle of them, and all you have to do is stick your finger in the hole of a DVD and slide it out through the top. It's very simple. At one point, in the case of CD's I use to place the cover art and the CD in the same slot. But this resulted in breaking the plastic a few times and easier scratches. I then decided to put the cover art in the front pages, with the CD's on the other side of the pages. This proved to work out well, but then space would go faster. I just decided to place all of the cover art in old shoe boxes instead, and place only CD's in the case.
The wallet has a quick lock binder, that you can dislodge for whatever reasons you have, and an easy to open zipper to close up the booklet. The handles are pretty well done and I never had any issues with them breaking. The outside design is made of leather, and I know of many people who find it ugly due to a brown stitch design that runs down it. Personally, this is a worthless gripe for me, since I can care less about the design. I care more for quality and results.
I have had somewhat bad experiences with this product throughout the years. I have bought some that would break rather easily, like the plastic cases that hold the disk would pop just like that. On one occasion the binder itself broke and all the pages hit the floor. Also, if the zipper breaks, then you can forget about closing it. But most of these are issues that have happened only once or so through out the years. One problem that use to annoy me was that the leather lips would sometimes hide the zipper. But once you know how to position the book before closing it, this will never happen again.
The packaging states that refill pages are available. I don't recommend going that route at all. Even though it seems like the wallet can hold more disk, it gives off a feel like the limit has been reached, and it can feel difficult to close. Instead, I just go out and buy another one. The price isn't bad and I've seen them go between 25 to almost 40 bucks, but I guess it all depends on where you get it from.
If your CD and DVD collection is getting out of control, then I recommend purchasing this. It stretches out my space greatly and they're easy to store. The cases also come in smaller sizes; 208, 92, and others.
Pros: -Holds a large amount of DVD/CD's, keeps them safe from scratches and dirt
Cons: -Zippers and plastic sleeves can sometimes break easily
